Look: Natural FOTD using Nars Lhasa, and my Pear and Honey Cake

Here's a look I did recently using natural looking shades of makeup.

I don't normally wear base makeup, but for this look I'm using Liz Earle's tinted moisturiser. I have small sample
of it and was giving it a try. I'll write a review on it soon.

Nars Lhasa
is a recent purchase. I've seen some beautiful swatches of the eyeshadow in various beauty blogs and just had to purchase it. Lhasa is a smokey lavender brown-grey.

Products Used:

Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint in 01 (sample-not pictured)
Becca Beach Tint in Fig
Shiseido Integrate Gracy Brow Pencil
Clarins Instant Definition Mascara
Nars Eyeshadow in Lhasa
Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in Black
Mac Patisserie

I love Becca Beach Tints. This shade in Fig is a pretty and subtle nude pink which looks great on both cheeks and lips (for this look I am just using it on my cheeks).

Here's a picture of the Pear & Honey cake that I baked recently. I had some friends over for our weekly mahjong session and thought I would bake them a cake while my husband cooked them Hainanese Chicken Rice. As you can tell from my poor craftsmanship, I made the crystallized decoration myself. The cake consists of 3 layers with cream cheese and honey icing.


  1. You're such an inspiration! I love your make-up! Natural and easy is what I've been going for lately as well. Really lovely look!


  2. The cake looks delicious and you are simply stunning!
